Well I hate to be the bearer of bad news or good news depending on how you see it, but a new Year is coming soon. I know everyone will wait until after Christmas to start their new me, new this and that but wouldn’t be nice to do things a different this year?
Instead of waiting, actually put an action plan in place. How many years have gone by and you say the generic I want to do (insert desire) but you say it but don’t make a sure plan to do it? I am sure quite a few. It’s time to change that mentality and actually make a real plan. Get things in order. Get your house which can be the place you lay your head as well as your personal house the place where your soul and heart dwells together too.
Either way its time to do and not just talk. I am serious. Anything worth having is worth some work. I know we are used to instant. We want an update, instant. We want food, drive through-instant. We want to shop-instant. Now you can shop without even having to get out of your car to pick it up. We are used to the right now. Let’s take that same mentality and put some action behind it. For my house we do a vision board party. We go and get some supplies, use my old magazines and get it done. Some people are visual like me and it helps to see what I need to do. So for instance my house has their vision boards in their rooms. So we look at it often and talk about what we can do to complete a certain goal. We have completed quite a few individually and collectively. Yes the kids have their own too. Now for them it may seem more of an art project, but can you imagine them getting in their spirit now how to get a plan and work their plan? They are going to have the potential to be great in their own rights. It’s never too early to get the little people thinking in the right direction.
So what say you? You spending time only getting things right for the holidays? Your future can wait right? Nope. Get a jump-start now. For instance the dreaded lose weight that people want to do yearly. You only go hard for the first 2 weeks maybe month in January but that’s it. Why not hang your ideal wish outfit at your eyesight. Get a new gym bag and actually pack it. Get you a new water bottle. Get you some indoor videos or work out gear so that when it snows or rains you can still push. Hope about use the holidays the time to get it. Catch the sales. Give others who ask your list and go from there. Again you can work it if you are about a little action. Get a new work lunch bag that you love. It will help you plan ahead so you can begin packing healthier snacks instead of change for the vending machine or not eating at all. See how that works?
How about the new job plan? Have you had someone take a fresh pair of eyes to your resume? Have you printed new copies to go into your padfolio for the upcoming interviews you are going to score? Have you gotten a new interview outfit and shoes? Sales people. Use this time wisely. Even if you hate the holidays you can still love these discounts. Have you updated the many useful job search websites? Have you gone to a few networking events that are held now during this holiday season? No. Then you have not exhausted all of your means. Finding a new job is sometimes a full-time job. You need to be spending your time working a new plan now and not wait until the influx of resumes start loading up on New Years day. Will people hire during the holidays? Not necessarily but they so start looking and putting their plans into place.
This new way of thinking can be applied to all areas of your life. So its time to get moving towards your new future. It’s all in how you create it. One can’t simply pray without works. What are you worth? I hope you see the value in yourself so others can see the same thing. Put your action to where you mouth is….
